I love this! And I love that it happened in Oklahoma. Midwest Wine & Spirits in Oklahoma City put up a sign that is literally driving gang bangers, criminals and others bug nuts. The sign say: “PULL YOUR PANTS UP or Don’t Come In!!! Try to have some decency & respect for others, No one wants to see your underwear.” I could not agree more. When the store owner was confronted on it, she said that people could abide by it, or shop somewhere else. Awesome.
The photo went viral and people are now talking about it across the country. Employees realize that the sign may offend some people, but they stand behind it as well. Not only are the drooping pants offensive… they make it easier for criminals to steal liquor. It’s a security issue as well. Employee Shana Wiessner stated, “We don’t need their business if they’re not going to be by the rules. We got rules around here, people.” And people should abide by those rules.
From America Now:
A new sign at an Oklahoma liquor store has people all over the country talking after a photo went viral.
Midwest Wine & Spirits in Oklahoma City put a sign on its door that got people all over town, and now all over the country, talking.
“Pull your pants up or don’t come in!!!” the sign reads. “Try to have some decency and respect for others. No one wants to see your underwear.”
Employees of the liquor store say that while the sign may offend some people, they stand behind the message.
“It’s tacky, and it’s gross and we’re adults,” employee Shana Wiessner told KFOR. “Pull up your pants.”
Wiessner explained that the policy also addresses security concerns, adding, “Usually, when people come in with their pants sagging, it’s easier for them to steal bottles.”
She concluded that if customers are offended by the sign or don’t want to abide by the rule, they can take their business elsewhere.
“I agree with it,” customer Chad Gilbert stated. “I don’t want to see anybody else’s underwear. I realize wearing pants low is a fashion statement for some, but it doesn’t work for me and I find it somewhat offensive.” Another customer, Sunshine Weatherby, vehemently disagreed with the sign: “I can see that if it was like a church. There are families there, you might have a problem with that, but this is a liquor store. I’ve seen worse at a liquor store.” Then don’t go there.
Most love the sign: “I’m 100% with the store owner!” another commented. “EVERY establishment should enforce this policy!!! Why isn’t the law of Indecent Exposure enforced?!?!?!” Another chimed in: “I like it,” they wrote. “Should be a requirement for all stores and restaurants. They use to call this ‘Indecent Exposure’ when I was growing up and it use to be against the law. I wonder what ever happened to that law.” But my very favorite comment has got to be this one: “Oh boy do I love this,” one person exclaimed. “These brats with their pants down around their knees are prone to retaliation. I hope there is none for this store because every store in America should do the same. It is really brain dead when they wear their pants around their knees and try to run from the police. Don’t you think they would wise up and realize you are not going to get very far before your pants bring you down. Poor little fools.” Exactly right. I have a standard theory that your IQ is directly proportional to how low you wear your britches. I’m proven right over and over again.
